Landon Donovan returned to the charge. The historic former American soccer player strongly criticized the Mexican players, to whom he said, they lack commitment and dedication in their profession, something he said he realized after his time at the Lion.
“I was in León for four months, with very talented players, but what I saw with Mexicans and South Americans was that they were not totally dedicated. They wanted to drink soda (soft drink), drink beer and eat badly. They weren’t perfect professionals, that’s a difference between American players and others ”, he said in an interview with Fox Sports.
He even pointed out Carlos Vela, a forward for MLS LA FC, who is different for him thanks to being under the tutelage of Los Angeles FC technical director Bob Bradley: “Vela helps a lot by having someone very strict like Bob Bradley, who has very clear rules. He is a great professional, so he is playing at a great level“

In addition to the above, the former LA Galaxy player said that the infrastructure of Major League Soccer (MLS) and his country’s football is stronger, although in Mexico there is more talent in young footballers.
“I went to several stadiums with León and the infrastructure in the United States is better. The facilities and places to train are better here, but in player-by-player talent Mexico is better, especially the offensive ones, ”he stressed.
